It's April 1 but we think the following information are real ;-) Alex Jumelin provided details on the BMX Flat FISE World Series 2016. First of all he wrote "you have to know that I was trying to convince the Fise staff to do a flat tour for years , so I'm really happy that it will happen". The full FISE World Series has 5 stops and at 3 of those there will be flatland contests. The stops in Croatia and China won't feature flatland. Depending on the number of registrations there will probably be 3 flatland classes (am, master, pro) and everyone can participate (no invitations). The top 3 pro riders will be invited to the following round.
The pro format will be the same for every stop: 2:30 run for qualification and finals. The top 3 will have a 9 minute battle plus last trick.
